Time Out says
Though he's best known for melding electronica with live instrumentation, British producer Bonobo (a.k.a. Simon Greene) has also started curating his own miniature music festivals. After presenting Outlier events in the U.K., France, Germany and Brooklyn, Greene is taking the concept on tour this summer, including a stop in Chicago that will take place on the Lakefront Green at Theatre on the Lake. Bonobo headlines the afternoon with DJ set, but he's joined by an impressive lineup of acts, including local house music produer Derrick Carter, Latin-influenced beatmaker Quantic, DFA Record dance punk Juan Maclean, underground house producer DJ Boring and glitchy electronics-manipulator Machinedrum. If you're looking for a progressive dance party with sweeping lakefront views during Independence Day weekend, find your way to Outlier.
